THURSDAY TUNES

Thursday Tunes Spotify Playlist


Who does not love a good playlist? I'll wait... 


I like to use music as motivation to do everyday tasks. From cleaning my home to working out, music is my companion. 


As a way to get ready for your tasks, I am sharing some of my favorite playlists from some dope humans and myself. Some are themed. Some are random. Some are ratchet. Some are nostalgic. No matter what they are, they are here to get you moving. 


WHY DO YOU LOVE MUSIC SO MUCH? 

The answer is simple...



Seriously though, music is great for many reasons but I'll list my top five:

1. Nostalgia. Have you listen to a song and remember where you were when you first heard it, what you wore, and/or what the air smelled like? Some songs make you want to time travel. What song makes you want to build a time-traveling machine?
 
2. Mood Booster. Listening to my favorite songs makes me feel like I can conquer ANYTHING. I can listen to Up, Up, and Away by Kid Cudi on repeat and feel invincible. 
 
3. It is therapeutic. I have MAJOR anxiety and music calms me. Research shows that this is not a TIKIMA ONLY thing, studies support this claim. 

4. There's a song/playlist for every occasion. Good days, bad days, so-so days. There's a song you may be able to relate to. 

5. DO-PA-MINE. Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. Dopamine can create feelings of alertness, happiness, motivation, and focus. Music heightens the activity in the nucleus accumbens which can release dopamine. Who doesn't want this "feel good" neurotransmitter to be released naturally? 

WHAT ARE #THURSDAYTUNES?


Each Thursday I will share a playlist that I have been enjoying. I may switch it up from time to time and throw in a few podcasts as well. 


WHY ARE THERE SO MANY FITNESS-BASED PLAYLISTS? 


Happy that you noticed that majority of my playlist may be centered around fitness formats such as yoga, strength training, and more. But why? 


Music is important to movement because it enhances physical performance. Research proves that music synced with repetitive movement allows a person to work out for a longer period of time. Music can distract you from fatigue and discomfort and increase participation in exercise. If have attended a cardio class such as Zumba or cycling, you may be able to relate. Music provides temporal cues that have the potential to make more efficient use of energy within the body. 


You can listen to the full playlists on Spotify.  Hope you enjoy the playlists HOMIES.
